Lauren Hoare

Acute Medicine

Ipswich Hospital

After medical school in Edinburgh, I moved to Suffolk in 2009 to undertake my medical training in the East of England. Having spent much of my medical training in Ipswich Hospital, I was appointed as a Consultant in Acute Medicine in August 2016. I work in the Emergency Assessment Unit at Ipswich Hospital, caring for patients presenting to the hospital with acute medical problems. In February 2017, I was appointed Clinical Lead for the Emergency Assessment Unit.

I also run the Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT) team, which administers intravenous antibiotics to patients in the community allowing them to avoid admission to hospital or be discharged from hospital earlier and receive hospital level treatment in their own homes.
